Little Mummy ~ Happy Birthday Emma!

Emma loves her babies.

Dressed in layers and layers of dress-up clothes...she is Mummy. Tenderly she cares for and nurtures her dollies. I tell her she is going to be the best Mummy in the whole world!

She says she will not be a better Mummy than me, but I tell her I'm sure that she will! Oh that the Lord would have her heart young and she would grow up to serve Him well.

Much better than me.








Just a little picture to demonstrate the layering involved here ~
it really is quite something! :)

Dearest Emma ~
As you turn eight years old, we pray that the Lord Jesus would have your heart and that you would be first and foremost HIS. Follow Him with all your heart and serve Him all your days and you will bring the greatest joy to your Daddy and Mummy!


Happy Birthday!


Lots of Love,
Daddy and Mummy
xoxo

Oh Camille! What a tender, loving mama she looks to be! Her and her baby look so special and cozy together! And Emma's outfit is beautiful! Feminine, without going over the top! Ha ha!
To have those years back when my now grown up daughters were Emma's age! Seize the day, friend!

Camille,

What a special gift for Emma to have you encouraging her to think lovingly of motherhood now, while she's young. The thoughts you plant now will bear loving fruit later. And how precious that she thinks you're a good mom:) She looks so sweet in her dress. Tell her Happy Birthday from me.

We enjoyed your potato soup recipe tonight!! Delicious! Thanks for sharing.

Teresa said...

Camille,

I'm sorry--I think I got that potato soup recipe from another blog. I printed off some of your recipes too, so I'm a little mixed up. I plan on trying your chicken soup recipe soon, so I'll let you know how that goes!

Thanks for sharing the recipes, though:)

Happy Birthday, Emma. So cute that she likes her dolls. My granddaughter, almost 2, loves dolls as well. I will need to get one for her. Little girls are so adorable. I still love my daughter now that she's an adult, still dear to my heart. Hugs and have a great day.
